NRS History & Company Growth
Mark’s interest from a very early age in everything mechanical stemmed from family generations surrounding Haulage, Quarrying and mechanics, learning from how steam engines work to motor engines enabled his ambition to start driving and maintaining his own tipping wagon at 20.
Mark Ketcher General Haulage went from strength to strength, growing from one tipper to a small fleet of tippers and plant. From small golf course landscaping projects to larger former landfill sites for Biffa. Mark Ketcher General Haulage expanded from haulage to operating inert landfills. After running for a few years he out grew the sole trader status to form the NRS Group in 2005.
NRS Group continued to operate inert landfills when in 2011 they had the opportunity to purchase Saredon Quarry.
Now running a large fleet of vehicles ranging from tippers to concrete mixers, NRS also run some of the largest inert tipping facilities, quarrying and recycling aggregate production operations in the midlands and employs over 70 member of staff.
Mark had often referred to his business as his ‘main hobby’, which has enabled him to grow, whilst still enjoying his business. With a strong feeling towards treating people how he’d like to be treated NRS has a very low employee turnover.
Mark believes NRS are nothing without their customers and strives to offer the highest quality service from the very start to the very end of each job we undertake.
